It's unfair to comment on both schools as they are new in IBDP, and SPCC just start the pre-IB program this Sept. I just share what I know so far, may be other parents can share their experience or thoughts.

  • Both schools offer IBDP bridging program or pre-IB program as transition between the new 334 system and IBDP, it's a good move for students to fit in IBDP and get better grades in Grad 11 & 12 (not the same as LPCUWC).
  • Both schools are picky to recruit suitable students to take the course. I talked to different IB admission officers of both schools. They have some criteria in mind and not just academic and interview performance. (I know in DBS, some top 10 students also turned down by IB as teachers thought that they will do much better in the NSS system.)
  • The board in DBS are right to turn IBDP as co-edu program, but turned down by students and old boys. SPCC will be better in this, as IB need more interactions and exposures, co-edu can be a better environment.
  • Both school invest alot to tailor-made a new building for IBDP, they are whole-hearted to run a good program compariable to LPCUWC in few years time.
  • Teaching staff - DBS have more overseas, experienced teachers, some of them are examiners for IBO, others are local and trained to be IB teachers. I heard some rumour about SPCC only used trained local teachers to run the IBDP, I think it's not true and they are similar to DBS, may be the split not the same.
  • Both schools had the same phenomenon - students and parents are wait & see the results. The 1st intake of DBS IBDP not as good as they expected, after one year, the progress of the students are better than NSS students. So the second intake has relative better average quality.
  • DBS has some overseas students - Germany, UK, China, Taiwan etc, the ratio not like LPCUWC. I am not sure about SPCC. Overseas student need to come to Hk for written exam and interview in DBS.

Is it right to say that if your grades are not good enough to enter an IB LS at form one, you are then pretty much isolated from the chance of receiving an IB education for the rest of your school life? If not, WHAT and WHEN are the other routes of entering IB stream? Thanks in advance for your reply.

No, both schools have common route from G7-9, then divided into Local and IB routes at G10 onward. G10 is IB bridging program and then IBDP program. Te other route will be 3 years NSS.

So if I am still into IB, my coming chance is to work very hard  in F3 , get my best marks and apply once again to the IB LS, entering at F4/G10 level.

Yes.

I post three photos of DBS IB admission test requirements. It's tough. For SPCC, a bit not the same in the past, I am not sure in this two years.
